Federal Court Says Gay Marriage Bans are Unconstitutional

A federal appeals court ruled that states outlawing same-sex marriage are in violation of the U.S. Constitution, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

"By upholding a Utah judge's decision, a three-member panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver became the first appeals court in the nation to rule on the issue, setting a historic precedent that voter-approved bans on same-sex marriage violate the Fourteenth Amendment rights of same-sex couples to equal protection and due process."

"But the court immediately stayed the implementation of its decision, pending an anticipated appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court."
